A Horse of a Different Color

A Horse of a Different Color

Sunday we decided to take a drive and go visit the wild horses one last time. The weather has been pretty iffy lately, wet, snowy and cold. Sunday was cloudy and cold, but nothing actually fell from the sky, so that was good. We looked for the same herd we always visit, but they were nowhere to be found. We had a pretty good idea where they were, but the roads were pretty muddy and we didn’t want to chance it.

So we drove down the main dirt road in the area, to look for a second herd that we had seen in the spring. They weren’t to be found either, so we just kept going and exploring. Good thing we did, we found a whole new herd. Well, a partial new herd anyway. Most of the horses we didn’t recognize, but when I started looking at photos from the spring I realized some of these horses were part of the herd we saw. It was so much fun to find a horse of a different color, or several for that matter.

This palomino stallion was way cool. Notice he only has one ear. And what a different body type he is. Short, and very stocky.

But he was still a good match for the other stallion.

Mixed Media Photography

We have been busy, busy. I have been editing, and printing like a crazy person, and Al has been sanding, gluing, painting, and applying art resin. Together we have created collages, brainstormed ideas, and come up with what we think is some pretty cool stuff.

I’m calling it mixed media photography, mostly because it fits in both those categories. We are using different papers, natural elements like grass and plants, and metal embellishments.
